It's another Medical Monday. I missed out last month, so this time I'm jumping back in. This month's link-up is hosted by Jane at From a Doctor's Wife, Emma at Your Doctor's Wife, and MJ at MD School Mrs.
It's been cold and snowy here in Toronto, so I'm looking forward to warmer days. February has never been a favourite month of mine. Until I met Gil, Valentine's Day was pretty much a downer, and winter is long here, so it still feels like ages until the spring thaw. This year has been kicking my butt so far. We've had more
snow that I can remember. My husband worked overnight on new year's
eve, came home sick, and spent the first 10 days of January with the flu
(which he lovingly passed on to me). Then yesterday, Gil was feeling
sick AGAIN. It feels like it's just been one thing after another since
I've been seriously in need of a pick me up and here it is:
We're going to Punta Cana! Miracle of miracles, after a month of putting off discussion, my husband actually worked out the dates and we booked a trip for the end of the month.
This coming vacation is indicative of one major change in me since getting married. When I was single, my travels always involved doing stuff: Museums, bike trips, renting cars and driving around Oahu, I wanted to be make the very most of my travels.
Since I've married into this crazy thing called medicine, I just want to slow down. All I want is a beach, a good book, a fruity drink, and my husband. I see him wearing himself down day after day, and I just want him to have a rest. Do any of you feel the same way? How has marriage changed your habits and preferences?
Happy February, everyone! Hope you are all staying warm and dry!
